The march and speakers will take place outside, but the Center will be open with air conditioning, water, snacks and bathrooms. It's supposed to be a hot day but we'll do everything we can to make it comfortable for all.

We encourage people to wear red to signify the rates of transgender violence in the U.S. and use the hashtag #TransRemembranceRed
